Course content

Description of technical systems and products. Modeling as a tool in product development and manufacturing. Use of CAD / CAM software for 3D modeling of machine parts and assemblies, technical drawing, simulation of mechanisms, finite element method analysis, and CNC programming. Geometric tolerances and analysis of measurement data. Programming for mechatronics systems. 3D printing.

Learning outcome

Knowledge: The candidate shall have knowledge of geometric product specifications regarding 3D modeling, technical drawing and tolerances. The candidate shall know the methods used in product development and manufacturing of mechanical products. The candidate shall have basic knowledge of programming of mechatronic systems.

Skills: The candidate shall be able to use CAD/CAM software to model products and do different types of simulations and analyses on the product models, as well as preparations for CNC machining and 3D printing. The candidate shall be able to make usable machine drawings based on a 3D model. The candidate shall be able to calculate geometric deviations on products based on measurement data.

General competence: The candidate shall be able to discuss a technical product with a terminology that is understood by other engineers. The candidate shall know what is expected from a mechanical engineer who will work in the field of product development and manufacturing.

Learning methods and activities

The course uses theoretical and practical exercises. The students will complete a practical course in machining and welding, which also includes training in health, environment, and safety (HSE). A group project work will be carried out on development of a product, including construction of a prototype, partly by use of 3D printing.

Compulsory assignments

  • Compulsory exercises
  • Practical course

Further on evaluation

The assessment in the course is Pass/Fail. To pass, the individual exercises must be approved, the group project must be approved, and the practical workshop course must be completed. For a re-take of an examination, all assessments during the course must be re-taken.

Specific conditions

Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Mechanical Engineering (MTPROD)
